Introduction of the Lab/ Research Field

We are the antibody engineering and cancer immunotherapy lab. Our current research is focused on the use of agonistic antibodies targeting immune costimulatory receptors such as CD40 and 4-1BB to treat cancer. Specifically, we employ (1) antibody engineering techniques to investigate the impact of epitope, isotype and affinity on antibody activity, (2) mouse tumor models to investigate the underlying mechanism of action of agonist antibodies and try to harness the mechanistic findings to improve existing therapies. (3) We are also interested in general antibody engineering approach to improve antibody-based cancer therapies including agonistic antibody therapy, immune checkpoint blockade therapy and direct-targeting antibody therapy.
